All About Photo Awards honours Vietnamese photographer

A photograph depicting an aerial scene of fishermen casting their nets on the sea taken by Vietnamese photographer Nguyen Phuoc Hoai has been won the Merit Award at the All About Photo Awards 2021.

Heart of the Sea by Nguyen Phuoc Hoai.

The picture was taken near Yến Islet in the central province of Phú Yên and features fishermen working on a small boat, with their fishing nets spreading around the vessel.

By chance, the nets form a giant heart shape on the background of the blue sea, which is why the photographer named it Heart of the Sea.

“The heart shape also symbolises the generosity of the boundless ocean for humans," Hoài said.

"After spending a day offshore, the fishermen will head back with their boat loaded with the gift of fish and other seafood.”

It also was among the finalists of the category ‘Bring Home the Harvest’ of the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year 2021.
